About the Event
Lecture and Demonstration: “Welcome the People: The Musical Legacy of the Reformation”
Five hundred years ago, a monk named Martin Luther set in motion a spiritual movement that would transform church music for his followers. In this exciting collaboration with one of the world’s finest consort of Renaissance wind instruments, the Rose Ensemble presents works by first-generation Reformation composers Johann Walther, Leonhard Lechner, and Michael Praetorius, as well as their ground-breaking reconstruction of a 1616 royal baptismal mass. Join Artistic Director Jordan Sramek for a fascinating look at this history behind the music and enjoy samples performed by members of The Rose Ensemble.
